9.64.090. Permit required; Sales

            No person shall offer for sale or sell, at retail, any fireworks without a permit issued by the Fire Department.  A separate permit shall be required for each separate sales location, and for each of the fireworks sales periods as listed in Section 53-7-225 of the Utah Code (as amended).  The fee for each permit shall be non-refundable and as set forth in the City's Consolidated Fee Schedule.  Each permit shall remain in effect for the specified time period (June 23rd through July 27th inclusive; December 29th through January 1st inclusive; and (2) days prior to and through the Chinese New Year inclusive) unless the permittee violates a provision of this Chapter, in which event the permit may be revoked.  All monies generated and received by the City as a result of such permits shall, as permissible by law, be earmarked or designated for fire prevention and/or fire prevention education services.  Applications for a permit to sell fireworks shall be in writing on the "Application for Sales of Fireworks" form and shall:

            (1)        Include the name and address of the person, firm, or corporation applying for the permit;

            (2)        Describe the specific location where fireworks will be sold;

            (3)        Include evidence of commercial general liability insurance in an amount not less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00) per occurrence and Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) aggregate; and

            (4)        Include any other information reasonably required by the Fire Department.

            All of the above required information, including fees, shall be submitted no less than fourteen (14) days prior to the specified time period.  However, if the permit application is for a location for which a conditional use permit has not been issued or is no longer valid, both permit applications shall be submitted no less than five (5) weeks prior to the desired time period for the sale of fireworks.  The applicable and required fees shall accompany the permit application and be submitted at the time of application.
